The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation says it has found a new Berlin location for a traveling design and discussion project after some local groups' hostility prompted it to abandon its first-choice site.
The foundation announced Tuesday the BMW Guggenheim Lab will open in the capital's Prenzlauer Berg district June 15 through July 27.
Organizers describe the lab, which first appeared in New York last year, as a "temporary public space and online forum encouraging open dialogue about issues related to urban living."
They previously planned to set up the structure on an empty plot in Berlin's Kreuzberg district, a traditional counterculture enclave, but abandoned that venue in March _ citing "threats against the project."
Groups denouncing gentrification and rising rents had protested the project.
